SSL Client Certificate

Hi,

tiny Reader RSS is great, thanks smile

I've created a client certificate and installed it on my iPad. However the certificate is not used, and tiny Read RSS says "The server ... requires a client certificate".

Does the certificate need some special properties to be used?

regards,
oliver.

Re : SSL Client Certificate

Well, you just need a SSL certificate for your tt-rss server and connect to it with an https connection. I don't think you need to install a certificate on your iPad (the client side).

I'm using tt-rss on a Synology server with a self-signed certificate and it works well with https wink

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I am referring to this feature: http://tt-rss.org/redmine/projects/tt-r … entication

Which uses a client certificate to authenticate instead of a username+password.

Re : SSL Client Certificate

Ok. tiny Reader RSS don't use this kind of certificate (client side). And fox wrote on his FAQ : "It definitely shouldn't be used for production." wink
You can use a self-signed certificate on the server, a real SSL certificate is the best (you can get free SSL certificate for your server), but you still need to enter your user/password to access your tt-rss instance with tiny Reader RSS.

Re : SSL Client Certificate

Ok many thanks for the explanation. I now understand.

(I am already using a trusted SSL certificate for the server, for my personal use. This question was for using a certificate for client login, which Safari on the iPad can use, so I guess it might be possible.)
